New study identifies 4,749 key gene clusters that influence progression of 32 cancer types

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

Researchers at the Mount Sinai Center for Transformative Disease Modeling have released a groundbreaking study identifying 4,749 key gene clusters, termed “prognostic modules,” that significantly influence the progression of 32 different types of cancer. The study, published in Genome Research, serves as a comprehensive resource and lays the foundation for the development of next-generation cancer treatments and diagnostic markers.

Despite significant progress in cancer research, understanding the disease’s genetic intricacies remains challenging. Previous research often focused on isolated gene functions in specific cancer types.

We aimed to fill this knowledge gap by providing a comprehensive analysis of gene-gene interactions across various forms of cancer.
